Tulsa Race Massacre 100 -- May 31, 2021


Motion Picture News, 25-June-1921

100 years ago today, on 31-May-1921, a white mob in Tulsa, Oklahoma attacked the black-owned Greenwood District, destroying businesses, burning houses and killing people of color. The Tulsa Race Massacre may have been the worst single instance of racial violence in US history. These two theaters were among the businesses that were destroyed.
